Why See Ghost Stories?
Keep telling yourself it's only a show
Join the lightly cynical parapsychologist Mr Goodman, who's life's work is dis-proving the tales of ghostly activity he investigates. Except there are three cases that have him flummoxed...
This is the chillingly terrifying scream-fest Ghost Stories from Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman, the men behind the darkly comic League of Gentlemen and the mind-twister Derren Brown. Following on from sell out engagements all over the world and a smash hit film, it makes a welcome return to London, ready to scare a whole new crowd.
Prepare to be taken on a thrilling ride, where tension is stretched time after time, before stinging, sudden shocks elicit squeals. Ghost Stories is a gripping and undoubtedly spooky spectacle, from creators who know their genre.
Things that go bump in the theatre
It would be poor form for us to spoil the secrets of Ghost Stories, but we can tell you there are 3 stories, that of a lonely night-watchman, a young driver out for a jaunt in the woods and an expectant father who starts to hear things go bump in the night. All we can say is that this is a guaranteed crowd pleaser, an inventive use of theatre that will scare the living daylights out of you.
Opening night: 29 March 2019
Please be advised that Ghost Stories contains moments of extreme shock and tension. The show is unsuitable for anyone under the age of 15. We strongly advise those of a nervous disposition to think very seriously before attending.

Everything is well judged. Everything works. From the direction and choreography to the set, the lights, the score, the band. From the top of Olympus to the depths of Hades. It's heavenly.
